Nottingham Forest striker Simon Cox has confirmed he will be out of action for around two months with his ankle injury.

The Republic of Ireland international hurt his left ankle in a challenge with Wolves defender Kevin Foley during the second half of the 2-1 win at Molineux on Saturday.

Cox was taken straight to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham for preliminary X-Rays which revealed no obvious fracture, but he is still facing a spell on the sidelines.

He tweeted: "Morning yes I'm out for around 2 months but it feels better and better each day. I wanna be back ASAP to help the lads achieve our goal."

Cox, 25, joined Forest from West Brom for £2m in August and has scored five goals in 17 appearances for the club since then.
